Canine Confidence Events 2019

with Janet Finlay

About these events

The events fall into three categories: Workshops, TTouch Practitioner Trainings and Presentations and Demos.

Workshops:

I currently teach workshops on three main topics.

Your End of the Lead: Do you find living with a reactive dog a struggle? This practical human-only workshop will teach you strategies and techniques to build your own confidence as a handler and to change how you think about yourself, your dog, other people as well as reactivity itself. This is also available as a Masterclass for a larger audience or a canine professional audience, where we will cover the same topics but the level and exercises will be tailored to the group. 

TTouch: Learn how the Tellington TTouch Training method (or TTouch for short) can help you and your dog build confidence and improve learning. These practical one- or two-day workshops have both handler and non-handler places (both actively involved) and will introduce you to all the key elements of TTouch. Attendance at these workshops enables you to use TTouch with your own animals and with client animals but not advertise that you offer TTouch in any form. They also qualify for the TTouch Associate programme if you are registered on that programme.

Animal Centred Education (ACE): Sarah Fisher's ACE programme incorporates detailed observations, free work, enrichment and engagement tools, leading techniques and TTouch body work to enable dogs to make appropriate choices and to help us understand their needs. ACE work is calming and helps deepen the relationship between dog and guardian. It is especially beneficial for dogs who cannot be handled easily either through fear or over-arousal. A full day as a handler on an ACE workshop contributes 16 credits to the ACE training programme. 

TTouch Practitioner Trainings: 

As a TTouch Instructor for Companion Animals I also teach three- and five-day Practitioner Trainings in selected locations. These will contribute to your training as a TTouch Companion Animal Practitioner. You will need to attend the equivalent of six five-day trainings to become a P1.

Presentations and Demos: 

As well as practical workshops and trainings, I also do occasional presentations, talks, discussions and demos on reactivity, including the human side, and TTouch. These are sessions of varying lengths usually to larger groups, that have less practical activity but may still include some audience participation!
